Hyperthyroidism risk factors

Hyperthyroidism can develop in anyone, but certain risk factors may increase the likelihood of developing the condition. These risk factors include:

  • Family history — Having a family history of hyperthyroidism or other thyroid disorders can increase the risk of developing the condition.

  • History of certain illnesses — Some chronic illnesses may increase your likelihood of developing hyperthyroidism.

How do I know if I need a prescription?

If you suspect you may have hyperthyroidism or any other thyroid disorder, make sure to speak to your primary care provider. They will be able to run diagnostic tests to determine if you have hyperthyroidism based on your thyroid hormone levels. Depending on what they find, they may prescribe medication to help you regulate your thyroid hormones, if medically appropriate. It’s essential to follow their treatment plan and take your prescriptions as directed.

Related conditions

  • Graves' Disease — Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder that can lead to hyperthyroidism. Graves' Disease causes the body's immune system to mistakenly attack the thyroid gland, causing it to produce an excessive amount of thyroid hormones.

  • Overactive thyroid nodules — Overactive thyroid nodules, also known as toxic adenomas, are growths that develop in the thyroid gland and produce excess thyroid hormones.

  • Thyroiditis — Thyroiditis is the inflammation of the thyroid gland and can be caused by an autoimmune response or other unknown reasons. The inflammation leads to the release of stored thyroid hormones, which causes excess hormones to get into the bloodstream.

Frequently Asked Questions

Appointments

What can I expect during my appointment?

During your appointment, your provider will conduct a full evaluation of your symptoms and may prescribe medications or treatments as needed, which will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice the same day. If necessary, the provider may refer you out to a local lab for testing, or to a specialist.

Can my thyroid issues be assessed and treated via a video appointment from home?

Yes. Circle Medical providers are board certified primary care providers who specialize in diagnosing and treating thyroid issues and other medical conditions from the comfort of your own home. To confirm hyper or hypothyroidism, your provider may order bloodwork from one of our 4,000+ lab partners that is conveniently located for you.

How soon will I receive my prescriptions?

Your provider can send your prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy the same day as your visit.

Can Circle Medical providers provide treatment for other medical problems besides thyroid issues?

Yes. At Circle Medical, all of our healthcare providers are board-certified primary care providers who can treat a wide array of health conditions.

General

What if I need in-person testing or examinations?

If any in-person care is needed, such as bloodwork, vaccinations, or other testing, our providers are able to send the appropriate request to a nearby lab. Results will be integrated with our HIPAA-compliant mobile app so that patients have access to all of their medical records in one secure place.

What states do you operate in?

To see our list of currently available states, begin booking an appointment.

You must be currently residing in the state of treatment as well as have your primary pharmacy be in that same state in order to be a patient at our practice.

How long are the appointments?

The first intake appointment is 30 minutes. Follow-up appointments are 20 minutes each.

Billing

How do I know how much my specific appointment will cost?

We provide a cost estimate when you are booking your appointment. For those with insurance, your actual cost is determined after we submit the insurance claim for your appointment. Once we submit the claim, insurance companies will pay for a portion of the appointment and pass on any remaining cost to you. Once we know what this cost is, we will update you with an invoice within the app.

When do I get charged for my appointment?

For those with insurance, it typically takes 1-3 weeks for the insurance claim to be processed. Once processed, we’ll send you an invoice within the app with any remaining costs. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

For those without insurance (or with out of network insurance), we will send you the invoice 1-2 days after your appointment is completed. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

Insurance

What insurance do you accept?

We accept over 1,500+ insurance plans. We cover most of the major PPO insurance companies (payors) across the United States. The best way to confirm coverage of your insurance plan is to begin booking an appointment on our website or via our mobile app. During the booking process, you’ll be prompted to enter your insurance information for a real-time verification of your insurance plan.

What if I am having issues verifying my insurance plan coverage?

The best way to confirm your insurance plan coverage is to call the Member Services phone number on the back of your insurance card. If needed, you can reference our Tax ID#: 474883537 and our NPI: 1134596091. Once you are able to confirm your coverage and your primary care copay costs, you can use the in-app chat to message our team with the information. We’ll then follow up with confirmation.

What is the total cost of diagnosis and treatment?

Your per-appointment costs are set by your insurance plan. If the costs seem high, you may be on a high deductible health plan (HDHP). This means that you have an annual out-of-pocket amount that you must pay on healthcare in a given year before your insurance plan will cover more of your per-appointment costs. 

If you are on an HDHP and have confirmed your insurance information in our mobile app, your remaining deductible for the year will be displayed on the “Book Appointment” page. Note that this amount may be outdated if you have had recent insurance claims processed.
